SB CORPUS CHRISTI TIMES, Wed., Aug. 18, 197 i Corvairs Under Attack WASHINGTON «B -- Persons riding in a Chevrolet Corvair "risk an unsafe level of carbon monoxide," Consumers Union said yesterday. "The construction of the heater is such that it will almost inevitably blow carbon monoxide into the Corvair passenger compartment should a small leak develop in the engine's gasketing or exhaust sy- tem," the organization said in its magazine, Consumer Reports. Testing 221 Corvairs owned by residents near the consumer magazine's headquarters in Mount Vernon, N.Y., CU said it found 25 of the cars produced carbon monoxide concentrations in the passenger compartment in excess of 50 parts per million, the recommended maximum set by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hy- genists. The limit i nCalifornia is 30 ppm for an eight-hour work day. "If CU's sampling is at all representative of the 900,000 Corvairs on the road today," the magazine said, "then it's quite likely that some 90,000 Corvair owners now drive at great risk in cold or wet weather, when they're likely to shut the windows and turn on the heater." CU said the Automobile Club of Missouri recently tested 52 Corvairs and 'four 17-nearly one third -- to iiave carbon-monoxide Inside con- carbon -monoxide concentrations o fmore than 50 ppm in the passenger compartment. "The club detected no excess carbon monoxide inside 100 cars other than Corvairs that it tested," CU said.
